Half-Life 2: Lost Coast
Half-Life 2: Lost Coast (Direct X)
Lost Coast is the free technology demo that Valve created to show off their HDR rendering technique. Because this method of doing HDR (high dynamnic range) lighting uses integer math instead of floating point, both ATI and NVIDIA cards can do both HDR and AA at the same time.
The disparity between the 7900 GS and the X1800 GTO is nearly as wide here in our Lost Coast benchmarks as it was in our FEAR testing. The XFX GeForce 7900 GS graphics card is an astounding performer here for the cost.
